About this title


Martin begins with predictions that western civilization underwent a paradigm shift in the 20th century. Older forms of rationality are patriarchal; artistic forms are closed conventions and fulfill norms of logic and causality. The emerging forms of thought are feminine, open, and incompleterequiring nurture and creative participation of the reader for meaning to exist.


"Martin has [made] the bridge from modernism to what comes after becomes a true opening to the future." -- Jerome Klinkowitz, American Book Review

"[What] he achieves, which others could strive for, is a multiculturalism within a consideration of innovative writing." -- Hank Lazer, American Literary Review
